TOMORROW: PETER PILOTTO FOR TARGET

Look of the Day


I really love designer high street collaborations. There is something thrilling about getting a designer look at under $100. I own pieces from so many similar collaborations: Versace, Lanvin, Margiela, Isabel Marant…the list goes on.

Peter Pilotto is the most exciting project that Target has put forward in their designer series and their global distribution partnership with Net-a-Porter means that the collection will maintain a decent quality and will be worn by style celebrities around the world.

I plan to purchase a lot of the swimwear pieces in preparation for some spring trips to Mexico. However, Diane Kruger and Dree Hemmingway have convinced me to add a few everyday looks to my cart.

WHO IS PETER PILOTTO? Peter Pilotto is a UK-based luxury fashion label by designers Peter Pilotto and Christopher De Vos. The two met while studying in Antwerp, Belgium, in 2000. They are known for their prints (as you can see above) and most recently, they won the BFC/Vogue Designer Fashion Fund 2014.

UPDATE: Collection is now available at Target.com and Net-a-Porter. Several pieces are exclusive to Target.com and prices rage from $16.99 to $79.99. Here is what landed in my cart:

MUAH! // THE NEW LIP OBSESSION

Look of the Day

A bit kitsch, yes, but these fashion lips are winning me over. They are everywhere. Stella McCartney earns the blame- her recent collection looks like she collaborated with Hobby Lobby and MAC. None the less, I’m liking it. There is an appeal of happiness in her new pieces.

I hear that your tastebuds change every seven years and I think it is the same for your general style preferences. The seven year itch, the seven year maturation…not sure what it is but lately I have been attracted to girly clothing. I had this same phase about six years ago so I guess it is about time for my return to Gossip Girl-dom.
